We're Here to Help
October 17, 2014
I love this time of year on our campus. The quiet summer months are finally over and SPU students have returned, providing a buzz of excitement and energy. Students are already rolling up their sleeves and jumping right into their studies and activities. I am once again reminded of our students' quality and character.
I've had the privilege of working with SPU parents and students for the last 13 years: 10 years as an enrollment officer and now three years as an advancement officer, so I fully understand the importance of your role as parents in the success of your sons and daughters. They probably wouldn't be at SPU if it weren't for you and the support you give them. We are so grateful that you and your students are a part of the SPU family, and we want to give you opportunities to continue to invest in their academic experience and community.

The Alexander Hall Campaign
Alexander Hall is central to the story of Seattle Pacific — a story that began in 1891 with a vision for outstanding Christian education that would equip students to do good in the world. Set on an uncultivated plot of land in early Seattle, Alexander Hall —our first building — brought that vision to life. Learn more.
On March 3, President Daniel Martin sent an email to SPU undergraduate students about 2014–15 undergraduate tuition rates.
